Personal Life

Fred was sued for defamation by Kenny Kramer, the man who was the inspiration for the "Seinfeld" character Cosmo Kramer. Kramer alleged that Stoller's book "Maybe We'll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star" alleged that he was homophobic, based on a passage about Stoller taking Kramer's NYC bus tour. Fred wrote about the tour going to Greenwich Village to revisit the 1993 episode "The Outing," which is about a journalist thinking Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza are gay and famously includes the line "Not that there's anything wrong with that." Stoller wrote, "In the gay-dominated Greenwich Village, I had to hear [Kramer's tour guide] make everyone scream out, 'Not that there's anything wrong with that!'" Fred added that the guide seemed like "some sort of deranged cheerleader." A judge dismissed the case in July 2014, and Stoller told "L.A. Weekly" shortly after, "My book is a lighthearted memoir. The court victory is one of those bittersweet things. Obviously this shouldn't have happened. I never wrote something to get anyone or be mean. I just wanted to tell my story and be humorous and connect to people."

Awards and Nominations

in 2012, Stoller won a Festival Prize for Best Actor for "Fred & Vinnie" at the London Greek Film Festival. In 2015, the "Over the Garden Wall" cast earned two Behind the Voice Actors Award nominations for Best Vocal Ensemble in a New Television Series, winning the BTVA People's Choice Voice Acting Award.
